From Script to Stage

Every great musical starts with a script. Add a piano, some music stands, and top South Florida musical talent and you’ve got the play-reading concert of The Longing and the Short of It at the Theatre at Arts Garage in Delray Beach. The script, by Daniel Maté, an NYC-based writer and winner of the 2013 Kleban Prize for Most Promising Musical Theatre Lyricist, is one of four being read in the Arts Garage Summer Tune-Up series. This theatrical song cycle about six mixed-up strangers in a room on an inner quest to feel “something like OK” includes clever and catchy songs that reveal the hilarious ways we all strive to attain self-esteem, connection, and peace of mind. Become a part of history and listen to the reading of this new script before it’s performed onstage. Pack a picnic lunch and bring a bottle of wine to the theater, located at 180 NE First St., on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $15 to $20 in advance and $5 more at the door.
